Here's what I promise...  I'm going to find you a great car... one that meets all your needs and one that you're excited about - at the most competitive pricing out there.  And believe it or not, we may just make buying it a lot of fun.

Scot Kelm
Sales Manager
(309) 691-0300

Scot Kelm joined our team in April 2020.  Can you imagine starting a new retail job during the height of a pandemic?!?  Scott has taught us more seamless processes than I ever thought possible.  What perfect timing, too.  He's made the customer transaction shorter in time and without confrontation.  Thanks for being here, Scot!

Kyle Eisenbarth
Service Director
309-691-0300

Kyle has a PHD.  In the car business, PHD stands for Papa has a dealership (which his family had a Ford franchise).  But in Kyle's case, he has his doctorate in automotive repair and psycology.  He can talk to the regular folk like me and explain an engine overhaul like it's 1+1 = 2.
